Super Mario Bros 3 Prototype!!!

NES Mario 3 Prototype! 1 of 1! This is the only known Mario 3 prototype that predates the retail release (2/10/1990) as seen on the stickers on the roms which are dated 3/23/1989!!! Yes, this prototype has known differences from the retail release and is truly one of a kind! Mario 3 is by far the most popular and sought after sealed NES title, and there are many sealed copies available, but this is the ONLY pre-retail Mario prototype with known differences. This one of a kind piece of history belongs in a museum. If you want to truly set your Mario collection apart from everyone else this is the way to do it.

Please understand that prototypes are either one of a kind or one of only a couple or few and they VERY rarely come up for sale so they are extremely difficult to price. As such, I welcome offers and am willing to work with you on price so don't hesitate to put in an offer and we'll go from there. I have multiple listings and would be willing to do discounts for multiple items purchased so please contact Dan if that's of interest. I've been collecting for over 20 years and am a well known collector in the community so rest assured that any ungraded items are indeed authentic and please don't hesitate to ask for more info. If I didn't buy it graded originally I didn't get it graded as these protos are too rare to chance shipping them back and forth and then getting damaged or lost. I had no interest in risking damage or loss of my protos and paying absurd prices to authenticate them when they are well established as legit was pointless. I'll be happy to provide provenance if you have any reservations with any of my ungraded items.
